Throughout history, indigenous peoples have fought an intense struggle for recognition and respect: first by right to the possession of their original territories; later, for independence and self-management over them. To this end, driven by public education and inclusion policies, indigenous communities have sought higher education institutions aimed at training indigenous teachers and capacity building training in various technological areas. With the arrival of this population, the university campus evolved into a place of multicultural contact, becoming a place of conflicting situations, both visible and invisible. This study, developed at the Sorocaba Campus of the Federal University of São Carlos, aims to identify elements in the university environment linked to the social, historical and cultural context that affect social relations between indigenous and non-indigenous communities and to point out possible directions for actions to minimize these conflicts. The aim is to encourage better conditions for the welcome reception and permanence of indigenous students so that they complete their education, which together with the academic knowledge acquired in accordance with their traditional knowledge and values, will positively impact the life of their communities.
